Red Rock Road Tripping: Part 1

On a recent roadtrip, we headed to Kodachrome Basin State Park with a few other families for a two-night stay. Joining us were Rachel and Jason (who suggested the location), Abigail and Adam, Amber and Jeremy, and all the kids of course.

We have done a lot of different trips before with this same group, but we've only ever done one other tent camping trip years ago and poor Isabelle froze in the middle of the night. With all the hassle that comes with dealing with a tent, we've stayed in cabins ever since but this time we decided that we should try tent camping again. We were the first family to arrive and we were blown away at our group campsite. It was luxurious by way of campsites and Andrew was ecstatic as he explored the place. There was plenty of room for everyone's tents and the pavilion was huge with lots of picnic tables underneath. It was secluded as well so we didn't have random people coming by and we didn't have to worry about quiet hours. We were very impressed with our stay in Kodachrome. The first night was colder than we all expected which left us all pretty sleep deprived, but the second night was a lot warmer and we were able to get a decent night's sleep before packing up. Even though the tent camping wasn't perfect, everything there was to do in Kodachrome definitely made up for it.
